Eine Gebrauchsanleitung in Sachen Liebe sollte wirklich endlich mal jemand schreiben!, findet die 16-jährige Penelope, als sie mit Karacho in ihre erste große Liebesgeschichte reinrauscht und, ohne über Los zu gehen, erst wieder an der Abfahrt »Herzensleid« zum Stehen kommt. Darauf bereitet einen wirklich keiner vor, weder Eltern noch Lehrer noch sonst wer von den angeblich so Erwachsenen. Genau betrachtet haben die nämlich auch kein Patentrezept in Sachen Liebe parat. Also beschließt Penelope, selbst dieses Buch zu schreiben, die Geschichte ihrer großen Liebe und deren Scheitern, entlang an all den kleinen Erinnerungsstücken, die sich durch Penelopes Liebesleben ziehen: vom ersten Händchenhalten im Kindergarten über den ersten kumpelig-peinlichen Kuss mit 11, bis hin zum ultimativen Date mit Mr Right.

Summertime and the lovin’ is easy…until it’s not. Compass Girls, Book 3 Too much love and loss taught Jade Compton to protect her heart and her sanity by steering clear of all that romance nonsense. She’s doing just fine, working two jobs, hanging out with her cousins and her best friend, Liam. But when a combination of unbearable heat wave and a case of the boredom blues knock her down, she longs to do something spontaneous…maybe even a little bit reckless. Liam Harrison met Jade when she was sixteen—in the local cemetery. If he’s learned anything after eight years of friendship, it’s that Jade has a wild streak a mile wide. And while he doesn’t want to tame the adventurous woman, he wouldn’t mind showing her a few sexy ways to channel some of her impulsiveness. With him. In the bedroom. When he proposes a sexy, no-strings-attached summer fling, Jade jumps at the chance to spice things up and indulge some pretty kinky fantasies. Then summer ends…and Jade comes to the uncomfortable realization that there’s only one place she’s comfortable in her own skin—Liam’s arms.
